Hilton drops the ball

Dec 23, 2003 5:05 AM

The Las Vegas Hilton will give guests a chance to kick off the New Year with $10,000 simply by playing "Drop N’ Win," Jan. 5-Feb. 15.

Each night, five contestants will receive four balls and $1 at the start of the game. Each ball is dropped down a labyrinth-like game-board and lands in a slot at the bottom of the board. Depending on the slot, contestants may win money or lose a turn.

The object is to multiply the initial $1 into as much money as possible, resulting in a $10,000. payoff If a contestant can land all four of the balls into a "10 Times" slot, the $1 turns into $10,000.

Beginning Jan. 5, guests of the Hilton may earn entries for the drawing, held nightly at 7 p.m. in the Race and Sports SuperBook.

Entry into the nightly "Drop N’ Win" drawings may be earned in a variety of ways, including staying overnight at the hotel, dining in a hotel restaurant, purchasing a beverage at a bar, buying a show ticket, admission to the Star Trek Experience, and many more.
